and london and they ever talked about the tunnel fires. and the third of them, at a reason was that there was no fatalities and i will give you the example. the 2008 fire was exactly on the 7th anniversary of 911. it was to the minute of when the first plane hit the first tower. that fire burned for 16 hours that tunnel was out of service for nine months and cost $190 million to repair and no casualties and very briefly, the bonus that you get there, if you use the same tunnel design techniques as what you are using for central subway, the savings would be in the billions of dollars, mr. reiskin knows the subway tunnel of up to 253 million, in closing, with regards to the safety aspects of the glass, and the transbay term terminal you may want to look at other materials. plastic and another one is called etfe, thank you. >> okay with that said, that does include the members of the public that want to address you. as the board earlier approved to continue item eight we will move into item nine >> thank you. >> authority sizing the executive director to execute the amendment
or london or singapore, our fans are not only choosing a great-tasting beer. but it's true to its origin. it's the real deal. it's san francisco's beer. in 1969 anchor began its sixth location at the bottom of potrero hill. today we see our development exceeding production capacity. so we need a second brewery. and to stay true to the values we hold, we knew that second brewery would have to be in san francisco itself. we are still a small company. and knew that such an undertaking could be overwhelming for us. fortunately the support that we found from others was overwhelming too. everyone took on a can-do attitude. and i would like to extend my enormous gratitude to the ports and to the mayor's office for their help in getting us here today. and also to our friends the giants that value san francisco icons. these reflect the heart and soul of the city towards anchor. and for that i would like to thank all the people of san francisco for the huge
london breed here on the local agency formation commission. just a quick question, what is our ability to actually differentiate our program in terms of information that's provided to the public from the pg and e program, you know, pg and e is talking about the use of energy credits, we're not, so if you can talk a little bit about that. >> yeah, we definitely anticipate a lower reliance on renewable energy credits than pg and e's program, so that would be one distinguishing factor. pg and e's proposal is to rely on green e certificates which are not recognized as renewable under the renewable portfolio standard law here in california. all of the products we are proposing to offer our customers to make up the 100% renewable portfolio are considered renewable under california's rps law, so that's another key distinguishing factor and those would be the sorts of things we would be talking about, we're also talking about the fact that our program is our building block for building locally renewable resources, for employing locally to conduct that construction, and that will also be a dist

london breed. i want to offer a brief statement on behalf of supervisor breed. the japan center garage is in district 5 and the members of the japantown community, many of whom are here today, have expressed how much they value having a community entity involved in the management of this garage. they want this lease to continue and supervisor breed wishes to support them in that effort. the nonprofit corporation wasn't created solely to sell bonds. supervisor breed served on the redevelopment agency commission which had a tragic legislate is of pushing out japanese and african-american property owners in the city. as supervisor mar mentioned earlier, this corporation and its predecessor served as a check against that, a voice for the community. and supervisor breed thinks that's something valuable that should continue. the corporation incurs about $276,000 per year in management costs, which may seem excessive or unnecessary, but bear in mind that mta would incur some costs if they were managing the garage, perhaps not as much, but at least some percentage of an fte. the members of the
